Living Love

Jill Briscoe

You can know a lot, do a lot, teach a lot, and care a lot—but if you don’t love a lot, you’re not a lot of good!

Too often our view of love is flawed and influenced by the culture that surrounds us. We begin to define love as the world does—a fleeting variety that lasts only as long as it’s convenient or brings excitement and happiness. But that’s not how love is described in 1 Corinthians. God’s love is bigger and deeper and endless. He loves us—and expects nothing in return. His love never fails.

What would your relationships be like if you loved this way? Do you even have a desire to love unhindered in this manner? 

In this inspirational series, Jill Briscoe takes a fresh and in-depth look at what love is. She shares encouraging and instructive personal stories to help you uncover what you know of God and the abundant blessing you can experience when you’re living love in your life.

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. What Is Real Love?

    Jill Briscoe

    Our greatest human need is love—to know we’re loved and able to give love in return. But in our broken world, some of us have been so hurt that we’ve lost the ability to receive and give love—from God and others.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe shows how God’s love is deeper, bigger, unconditional, and endless. It’s not a feeling but an action. And when we let the Holy Spirit heal us and work in us, we can once again become vulnerable enough to open our hearts to God’s love—and in turn reflect His love out to other people.

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 13

  2. 2. How Can I Be More Patient?

    Jill Briscoe

    We’re often tempted to live our lives out of our emotions where ugly things like frustration, anger, jealousy, and impatience rise to the surface. But love is patient. Love wins over difficult people. Love wins over unlovable people. But it’s never something we can do in our own strength.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe explores patience as an outpouring of love and why allowing God to teach us long-suffering will transform the gift of love we give to others into a kindness the world seldom sees.

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 13

  3. 3. How Can I Stop Wanting What Others Have?

    Jill Briscoe

    Envy is something many of us struggle with, especially in today’s culture. The problem is that all too soon envy of what someone owns or has accomplished morphs into jealousy where we don’t want them to have or enjoy what they have! How do we stop this comparative and unhealthy thinking that’s harmful to us and prevents us from loving people in a pure and Godly manner?

    In this message, Jill Briscoe gives practical insight to help free us from the burden of want and instead rejoice in the triumphs of others.

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 13

  4. 4. How Can I Like Myself Without Being Proud?

    Jill Briscoe

    Is there a difference between a healthy self-image and pride? We read in 1 Corinthians 8:1 that while knowledge “puffs up,” love “builds up.”

    How do you put your gifts and God-given potential to use and remain humble in the process? How can you be confident and assured in God’s leading and not entertain a high view of yourself?

    In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from Scripture to show you how to balance this so you’re free to forget yourself and focus instead on other people and the work God has for you.

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 13

  5. 5. How Can I Love Again?

    Jill Briscoe

    Are you struggling to love someone in your life right now who hurt or betrayed you? And yet God asks you to project the unfailing love He has for you to people in your world. How do you do that? Do you even want to try and love someone you find unlovable?

    In this message, Jill Briscoe will help you learn to surrender and depend on God as the ultimate authority that fuels your ability to love and draw people to Christ.

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 13

  6. 6. How Can I Love God?

    Jill Briscoe

    Is there a “good” thing distracting you from loving Jesus? It can be tempting to dedicate yourself to busyness and miss one of the most important things Jesus asks of you—love. Good things are absolutely worthless without love.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe studies the story of Martha and Mary to uncover the choice that’s yours to make in order to love Jesus with all your heart, soul, and strength.

    Scripture:  Luke 10:38 - 10:42
